Navia finds Keys to expanding its network and offering

Melbourne-headquartered Navia has extended its Australian network with the purchase of Perth-based Keys Freight and Logistics.

Logistics company Navia now has locations in four Australian cities and an expanding global footprint with offices in strategic locations around the world.

Keys Freight and Logistics was founded in 2015 and has expert knowledge of the Western Australian market.

The company’s core business is logistics, arranging the transportation and clearance of commercial cargo – including e-commerce. It provides Customs clearance, warehousing and inter-state transport.

Navia, formed in 2003, is focused on tech-based solutions for customers, and its NaviaHub platform includes apps and dashboards which provide customers with online bookings, tracking and supply-chain metrics.

Navia has domestic bases in Melbourne, Sydney and Brisbane, and overseas operations in Auckland, Chicago, Penang and Budapest.

Keys founder Cos Breglia will continue to lead the team in Perth, and joins the leadership team at Navia.

Breglia said: “Keys Freight identified that both technology and scale are necessary to support its future growth. Navia meanwhile has a world-beating technology suite, as well as the scale of a larger entity.

“Navia had voiced ambitions to enter the Western Australian market, and it quickly became apparent that Keys Freight joining the Navia network would provide the solutions both companies desired.”

Navia chief executive and founder Simon Borg added: “Keys Freight and Logistics is very much a hometown hero, and the team Cos leads are experts who are passionate about the customer experience.

“With Navia’s technological capabilities, the core values we share and the complementary skills and  abilities of the combined businesses, this expansion will turbocharge our growth in this and other markets.

“It will also provide our staff with exciting opportunities to advance their careers within an expanded organisation.”
